Well, now I'm confused.  I might have a reboot problem and not know
about it in the sense that I hardly ever reboot (I think the only linux
reboot that was ever required of me in the course of my usage of the OS
was after a kernel update).  

Now you say rebooting requires and entails the exact same electrical
event as a poweroff?  I don't quite understand.  You mean that reboot
powers off the machine, and then turns it back on again immediately,
whereas a shutdown/poweroff simply powers the machine off?  

I'm talking soft reboot here, "shutdown -r now".

You must surely be talking hard reboot?  I turn off my machine once a day, at
night.  There have been no problems turning it back on again, no hangs on
"rebooting" (hard).

Sorry for leading you down this trail of confusion.
